“No! Absolutely not!” At this moment, Li Youran had actually let out
a calm smile. “I would rather have the Li Residence burnt to the ground
than mobilize you!”
His smile contained a peculiar mix of tenderness and chilling
ruthlessness. “As long as our people still lives, the Li Family will
also remain. But if you were to show yourself, what the masked men in
black does no longer matter. One thing I can be certain of, we will end
up attracting the attention of countless eyes! Once your identities are
exposed, or even if your identities do not become exposed, the Li Family
would end up in hot soup! In addition, the rumours that the Xuan Core is
in the hands of the Li Family would spread out in all directions. When
“Senior brother, please remain in this secret chamber for now and not
come out! Once this matter settles, I will immediately arrange for
someone to send you out of the city! If there are any other matters that
require your help, I will immediately notify master and fellow
seniors,” Li Youran laughed lightly. “This time, not only am I not
going to stop him, I will even send some more people for him to kill! I
am curious to see what would happen to this Old Duke in the end!”
“His heinous actions are no different from the crime of rebellion. Even
if the royal court is somehow willing to overlook it, would the Emperor
tolerate it?” A rare sneer appeared on Li Youran’s face.
“Very well. If that is the case, I won’t say anything else. I will
follow your wishes,” The white robed man’s face expressed
dissatisfaction, but he nodded helplessly. “Junior Brother, if you have
the time for it; you should go visit master. Master has been… worried
“Senior brother can be assured, I will definitely do so,” Li Youran
smiled faintly and walked out.

Just then, an aerial signalling firework exploded in the skies with a
“boom” sound. Its explosion created an array of colours in the sky,
beautiful to the extreme.
After the firework was set off, all the masked men in black retreated
immediately, just like the receding tide. They disengaged from their
battles and retreated, some leaping across the walls while others rushed
out through the doors. Within the matter of a few blinks, they have all
disappeared into the vast expanse of the night…
Soon, the thunderous sounds of hooves resounded as thousands of cavalry
reacted. In an orderly manner, the cavalry units of the military rode
towards the Li Residence at best speed! In just moments, they had all
arrived before the door of the Grand Preceptor Li’s Residence. A series
of commands rang out and the mounted soldiers urged their horses to move,
surrounding the Li Residence!
The main gate was smashed open with a “boom” and Grandpa Jun Zhantian
stepped inside, his body exuding killing intent!
His body was covered with a sky blue glow, a result of channelling the
Sky Xuan qi within his body. Although it was likely that the Li Family
would not dare to do anything against him due to his identity, he must
place considerations on ‘what if’s. After all, it is better to be
safe than sorry.
On either side, two teams of elite soldiers entered the area in two rows,
their swords flashing.
“All members of the Li Family, get out here! Assassins have appeared
within the city and I am now conducting a search on the entire city!”
Grandpa Jun roared loudly, his voice shaking the entire residence.
“Hehe, it turned out that Old Brother Jun had personally come. You
honour my humble abode with your presence,” The Grand Preceptor Li
Shang’s face was all smiles as he stepped out from the main hall. Step
by step, he showed the eager demeanour of someone who had just been
reunited with a long lost twin brother.
Jun Zhantian’s face remained passive. “Grand Preceptor Li, please
keep your underlings and relatives in check. Princess Ling Meng had just
suffered from an assassination attempt. Thus, I am now performing my
duties in searching and capturing the assassins. If anyone here gets
injured due to interfering with my military duties, I will not be
responsible!” After saying that, he waved his hand. “Search!”
“Hold!” Li Shang stepped forward, his white beard flowing lightly.
The gentle look on his face flickered momentarily before he said in a
loud voice. “Senior Duke Jun, you are the Grand Marshall of the
kingdom’s military forces, a Duke of the kingdom, a person of great
authority and weight in the royal court. However, I am the Grand
Preceptor, another person of great authority in the court, and also a
Duke! Without His Majesty’s decree, who would dare to be presumptuous
within my Li Residence?”
Jun Zhantian sneered, his eyes revealing traces of emotions. “Grand
Preceptor, are you trying to imply that any high ranking official within
the royal court have the right to harbour assassins within their homes?
Go search! Anyone who dares obstruct, kill them without mercy!”
Suddenly, hundreds of soldiers marched in from behind, heading towards
the Li Residence’s inner areas with the intention of searching. Li
Shang’s body trembled in anger and he shouted. “Jun Zhantian, you are
acting brazenly, overstepping the bounds of your office! Are you planning
Jun Zhantian laughed out loudly. “Grand Preceptor sure knows how to
joke! This senior official is simply trying to root out the assassins who
tried to assassinate the Imperial Princess. How is this action of mine
overstepping the bounds of my office? How could this be considered
brazen? How am I planning to rebel? Grand Preceptor, you have been trying
to stop me from searching your residence for quite a while now. Could it
be that there is a connection between you and the assassins?” After
saying that, Grandpa Jun ignored him and waved his hand, signalling for
the soldiers to speed up their searching speed.
It was at this moment that a white robed youngster stepped forth; it was
none other than Li Youran. He gave a ceremonious salute of respect to Jun
Zhantian before speaking up. “Since Senior Duke Jun wishes to conduct a
search, our Li Family’s underlings would certainly not oppose you.
However, without His Majesty’s decree, Senior Duke Jun’s action today
would be tantamount to a wanton act of trespassing into the home of a
high ranked court official. Hehe, even if Senior Duke Jun is not fearful
of the consequences, our Li Family still needs to uphold some of our
reputation. If this matter were to be spread out, then both our
reputation would end up being smeared!”
Jun Zhantian coldly stared at the refined looking youngster standing
before him. He could not help but recall his grandson, Moxie. His
grandson could have ended up being even more powerful than Li Youran, but
had ended up suffering from a sinister attack! When he thought about
that, his fury burst out and he coldly asked. “What are you
“This junior only have a simple question to ask of Senior Duke Jun.
Senior Duke Jun keeps reiterating that you wanted to conduct a search of
my family’s residence to find assassins. It does not matter from where
or how Senior Duke received the information that our Li Family is
harbouring assassins. However, what will Senior Duke do if you are unable
to find the assassins within my family’s residence?” Li Youran gently
smiled and took another step forward. “Should that happen, Senior Duke
Jun will have to give our Li Family an explanation!”
Grandpa Jun laughed out loudly. Suddenly, he took a step forward and
threw out a vicious slap at Li Youran’s face. A “pa” sound rang
out, followed by a kick from Grandpa Jun directed at Li Youran’s
stomach. After kicking Li Youran to the ground, Grandpa Jun spoke out in
anger. “This senior is in the process of searching for assassins! Not
even your grandfather dared to fart in front of me, but you? What are
you? You dare come out to start a debate and find faults with this
senior? You want an explanation? This is my explanation!”
“Pooh!” Jun Zhantian spat out. “What a joke! If we could not find
the assassins, that would naturally mean that your Li Family is innocent!
If we cannot capture the assassins, then we will obviously have to
continue searching! What else is there? I am more interested in asking
you this. Your Li Family, from the seniors down to the juniors have been
desperately trying to stop me from conducting a search for the assassins.
What are you planning? Could it be that your Li Family is planning to
rebel? Are you the mastermind behind the Imperial Princess’
assassination attempt? If the assassins were to successfully escape due
to your actions of delaying my duties, do your Li Family have enough
heads to bear this responsibility?”
These words were directed at Li Shang. Clearly, Grandpa Jun did not view
Li Youran as someone with the qualifications to even talk to him.
Even in a confrontation between military forces, rank must be considered.
If a bunch of rookie soldiers with no qualification were to be sent to
the battlefield, they would only end up being suppressed and massacred.
Naturally, Li Youran understood this logic. However, he could not stand
the sight of his grandfather being humiliated so. In addition, there were
indeed some people that must not be found staying inside their hidden
chambers. If those people were to be found, that would be akin to having
yellow mud smeared onto their underwear. Even if it is not poop, everyone
will still think it is poop. Even if the Li Family is not guilty,
everyone will still think the Li Family is guilty! Left with no choice,
he had to step forward and hope that Jun Zhantian would consider his
status as the number one person within the military forces and let this
How could he have guessed that the current Jun Zhantian no longer cared
about his status or reputation? A slap and a kick, executed in a flash!
Li Youran may be a genius, but his experience is limited. His current
level of cultivation is only at the Gold Xuan, a difference of Heaven and
Earth compared to Grandpa Jun’s Sky Xuan. In addition, he was caught
off-guard; and thus had to endure a slap to the face and a kick to his
stomach. All he could feel was his mind ringing and stars spinning before
Even though Grandpa Jun did not utilize any xuan qi in his attacks, they
were both done before the eyes of thousands. For Li Youran, this slap of
his was akin to a strike to his heart!
